I LOVE YOU AND I’LL

TAKE YOU TO THE MOVIES

(TE QUIERO Y

TE LLEVO AL CINE)

Screenplay, Vega, Ramon Garcia. Camera (color), Santiago Yanes; music, Magda Galvan.

With: Niurka Noya, Ricardo Vega, Liliana Reino.

This experimental-short anthology film has the texture and feel of a student effort. Its only interest is that it comes from Cuba, which has been forced to curtail much of its serious film production due to lack of funds.

Made up of a trio of tales, “I Love You” works best when it doesn’t strive for narration, as in the second tale, “The Cuirass,” which involves a pair of sunglasses that pass from person to person.

First story, “Insomnia,” predictably enough deals with the desperation of someone unable to sleep, while final yarn concerns a couple who go to the movies only to find they are pursued by a camera crew filming their every movement.

Given the super low-budget treatment, the obviousness of each of these stories is pathetic and overstated, while acting is strictly amateur.

Film begins with a time-lapse interlude that is repeated between each story in an effort to pad an already very short film.
